Thoughts on heavily modded UrS4?

As far as the car goes, if the mods have been installed correctly and the car has been maintained, I wouldn't be afraid of it, most of those parts are factory VAG, so quality should be good.  Just be sure to drive it well, make sure it doesn't ping with 91 octane, no clunking, and that it aligns properly.  Obviously the accident history should be well known regardless.  Also be aware that maintaining some of these aftermarket parts will be slightly more expensive.

I agree that you'll have an issue with financing a used car for significantly more than its worth, good reciepts would be a must in convincing them of the value.

Sounds like a fun car tho.


>I know there's a S4 list here, but I'd rather get the opinions of those whom I've grown to trust here... Would you buy a heavily modded UrS4? I would NOT sell the CGT, the UrS4 would be used for weekend driving with the wife & it needs to be reliable enough for long trips.
>1992 S4 silver with grey leather 148k but motor was replaced at 90k with new long block because the old motor sucked a plug. At the time the motor was installed it also got an rs2 manifold, turbo, injectors, programming, 3" turbo back exhaust, since then it got koni adjustables in all four corners, 10lb flywheel, center force clutch, Six Speed out of an rs2, hid conversion in all locations, e code lenses and markers, Porsche 993 bi turbo front brakes, slotted rears, borbet 17's, a4 16's, stock 16's, car has had lots of routine maintance and been loved but desperate measures are here please let it go to someone who will drive it and appreciate the supercar it is. Asking 15k or b/o should easily be worth that in parts alone.
>Now, I would have to get financing on this car, and I doubt the credit union would finance the car for anything more than blue book, and he is asking WAY over bluebook. So I would have to get him to come down quite a bit and I would throw some cash in... Thoughts?
